DAM Event Updates – 7th April 2021
There are a number of DAM related events occurring in the next couple of weeks.
On Thursday 15th April, a panel of DAM and digital content experts will be presenting ‘DAM + Museums: Demystifying the Cloud‘ – an online discussion featuring examples of how cultural institutions such as museums, galleries, and libraries are moving their operations to the cloud. This free to register event will provide an opportunity for attendees to gain invaluable tips and insights for their own organisation’s migration to cloud-based asset storage and management.
“Join the discussion on taking those first steps to being on the Cloud and what this means for your DAM. In this session, you’ll hear real examples from cultural institutions on how each started their journeys and the benefits that come with moving their DAM to the Cloud.” [Read More]
